Panetta Is Safe After Car Ignites Near His Plane at Afghan Base
Nope, that’s not it, that’s not the real news, here’s what should have been the headline and real news.
US GOVT DISARMS AMERICAN SOLDIERS IN AFGHANISTAN
In a sign of the nervousness surrounding Mr. Panetta’s trip, the Marines and other troops who were waiting in a tent for the defense secretary to speak were abruptly asked by their commander to get up, place their weapons — M-16 and M-4 automatic rifles and 9-mm pistols — outside the tent and then return unarmed. The commander, Sgt. Maj. Brandon Hall, told reporters he was acting on orders from superiors.
It is totally unthinkable that a US Soldier would be told to disarm in a war zone. What was Penetta afraid of? When OUR govt mistrusts OUR military it says a lot about the kind of govt we have. Time for a regime change.
